a different result and what he said was this is about the obama administration trying to make me a scapegoat to try to cover their own failures elsewhere within the gsa and i'm not taking it. >> yeah, well he was the former leader of the entire gsa and also the leader of that rocky mountain divisions that sent dozens of employees to the lavish conference, and almost a million dollars of waste at that conference. if there's not accountability at the top for the people in charge of these people, i mean, who is going be to be held accountable for that? i think that's a very serious question and by the way, he was at at least one planning meeting for this conference. >> megyn: here they are, playing the ukulele on our dime, getting ready for the conference where they he get the commemorative coins and play with the mind reader and whatever else they did and we paid for. >> looks awesome. >> megyn: fantastic, if i didn't pay for it i'd feel better about it it. but he said they did not brief him of the details of purchasing and contracting and wasn't heavily involved in the planning. the question
and five years, four and a half since the obama administration took over, what's it going to take? >> i think general shinseki is an example of the many public servants at the va and he is a decorated veteran himself. i've dealt with va officials in arkansas and washington here and they want to do the right thing. they may lack the resources and best practices. in some ways the department of veteran affairs is like an insurance company or claims processing company. they don't always have the best and most modern practices and one thing we could do in congress through oversight is help to ensure they get the training and resources they need. i think the will and the desire are certainly there to serve veterans if you look at an organization like walmart, my home state just announced a new initiative where they're going to hire every veteran who applies for a job, as long as they have a clean background check, they want that experience there. the country certainly appreciates veterans and wants to serve them. >> good intentions just don't get them those benefits soon enough. >> right whic
that night that according to lindsay graham who told fox news the obama administration is being unusually tight lipped compared to other events. >> you got to remember this administration leaked every detail of the bin laden raid. though telled old us about seal 6. they are refuse to go give us the identity and allowing congress to be interviewed. >> four died in the terror attack. shawn smith and former navy seal glen daughterty and tyrone woods and ambassador chris stevens. >> information begins to emerge as we learn the security agents and one state department contractor who were among the injured may be being asked not to talk. lindsay graham tells fox news the injured survivors may have been quote told to be quiet. he says the house should investigate. >> i am going to hold up the business of the senate until they get the survivors on record. i have talked to a couple. the story is chilling they are scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. >> members the house intelligence committee says it's still too early to say whether or not they will investigate. >> s
excited and was very critical of the obama administration. you also talked with him this morning on your show. >> it's not really right stuff or left stuff. it's logical stuff. it's talking about what has happened historically to people who don't control their budgets and a whole host of other things in terms of destroying the harmony in the nation and pitting people against each other, how those things are not useful. i think a lot of people resonate with that. they don't have to be democrats or republicans. they just have to be logical people who want america to succeed. >> so is he a serious contender potentially? >> i don't think he he is a serious 2016 contender, at least by his own admissions. but it does tell you, he sort of faced off with the president, at least was in his proximity when he criticized the president about a month ago at the prayer breakfast. this made him an instant darling of conservatives. conservatives basically feel that on capitol hill and elsewhere the conservatives have not confronted the president, have not been tough enough. so he was heralded as this new
but at a lower rate than it should be. we lost over 700,000 government jobs during the obama administration despite all the right wing talk about him the fact is the deficit is getting smaller and there are fewer and fewer government jobs. the addition of jobs we had last month, 236,000 jobs, 70 those of those were business service jobs. that's a good sign for the future. accountants office workers being hired that employeers expect more business in the future. but the sequester and the press for austerity and the increase of social security tax are all slowing our progress to where we should be. >> michael: of course these companies would be hiring accountants now because they're making so much damn money because they're not paying enough wages to their workers. that's part and parcel of how it works. >> yes remember a fundamental tenant of the chicago school and i went to the chicago school is to get rid of unions, that means driving down wages. i just reported in my column in tax analysts, tax notes, if you take the average increase of income for the bottom 90% of americans from 1966 whe
joking around with dennis rodman. the united states, the obama administration, right now taking the north's threats of a nuclear attack very seriously. the pentagon has just announced it will beef up america's defense missile systems out on the west coast. in california, oregon, washington state. let's go straight to cnn's pentagon correspondent chris lawrence, watching what's going on. chris, a lot of us are stunned by this decision but update us on what is going on. >> wolf, we just came out of a briefing where we learned the pentagon is going to spend a billion dollars to put new intercepter missiles on the west coast. now, that plan includes react investigating a missile field that the obama administration deactivated just a few years ago when it concluded that north korea didn't pose enough of a threat. if a nuclear missile is ever fired at the united states, this is the best hope to stop it. 30 interceptor missiles which can be launched from ground silos in alaska and california. now the pentagon is deploying up to 14 more. >> the reason we're doing what we're doing and the reason w
's office politics, michael isikoff, he's been on the front lines reporting on the obama administration's controversial drone policy. i asked him about the uproar and the catalyst for the recent scrutiny. >> what we did was get ahold of the justice department white paper which laid out the legal reasoning that would justify the use of lethal force, drone strikes, although it doesn't mention drone strikes, against american citizens. and while the administration officials had given a couple speeches on the subject, the white paper filled out some of the blanks in those speeches and gave a fuller explanation of the legal reasoning, and in some ways when i think significantly went beyond what had been stated publicly. particularly, and this is relevant very much to the discussion of the iraq war, what it called -- what it described as a, quote, broader concept of imminence. the first test as to whether or not a president can use lethal force to kill an american citizen is does that citizen, is he engaged in activity that poses an imminent threat to american citizens? that's the first test.
carolina senator lindsey graham, who told fox news the obama administration is being unusually tight-lipped compared to other international events. >> and remember, this administration leaked every detail of the bin laden raid and told about the pakistani doctor who helped who is now in jail and told us about seal team six. they're refusing to give us the identity of the survivors and allowing them to come to congress to be interviewed. >> harris: you may remember, four americans died in an asack, ambassador stevens, sean smith, gloenn doherty and tyrone woods. >> reporter: harris, details about the benghazi terror attacks begin to emerge as we learn the three diplomatic security agents and among the injured may be asked not to talk. republican senator lindsey graham tells fox news the injured may have been told to keep quiet. >> i'm going to hold this up in the senate until we get the survivors on record. i've talked to a couple and their story is chilling. they're scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. >> reporter: the ranking member of the house inte
have had unpleasant phone calls and conversations with people in the obama administration, but i had them with the bush administration and that's -- well, it's part of the job. the truth of the matter is, i never really understood the people who get a nasty phone call and then go on tv to talk about it. it's part of the job. you do a story they don't like, you're going to get yelled at and you listen to them or you yell back and then you move on. >> this is what you signed up for. let me ask you about journalists often accused, as you know, about caring less about issues, substance governing and jeb bush on "meet the press" last week raised this point with david gregory. >> before i let you go, who is the hottest florida politician right now? you or marco rubio? who are we more likely to see in the white house? >> man, you guys are crack addic addicts. you really are obsessed with all this politics. >> i have been called a lot of things. >> crack addicts. that's a serious charge. >> i mean, look, obviously, if there's a politician versus a reporter, my first inclination is to go with
on a politically charged bill that would block the obama administration from waving any work requirements to receive welfare. the house republicans accuse the president of trying to gut the work requirement that was passed back in 1996. the white house says that requirement creates bureaucratic hurdles for states in placing welfare recipients. to the american southwest new concerns over securing our southern border there as spending changes in washington are expected to reduce border patrolman power. meanwhile there is new attention on the technology that will be put on the front lines there. william la jeunesse has seen it firsthand at the border security expo in phoenix, arizona. william, good morning, there. >> reporter: bill, as you know a lot of the border is very rugged, it's mountains, canyons, of course the rio grand. you cannot build a physical fence there. the border patrol relies on a series of ground sensors to detect people coming in but also long-range cameras like this one that can see day and in it to tell them where illegals are and where they are going. >> the product is
to be killed in the line of duty since 1979. on november 14th, president obama says that his administration had provided all information regarding, quote, what happened in benghazi, still, we search for answers. we are also getting new reports today that a federal grand jury is investigating a u.s. senator, namely democrat robert menendez, as questions grow over what prosecutors are looking for in this probe. the democrat from new jersey caught up in a controversy involving his relationship with the wealthy friend in miami, florida. an eye doctor who made some hefty donations to senator menendez and the democratic party in the last election cycle. doug burns is a former federal prosecutor. now we have been told that a federal grand jury is investigating the senator? >> yes, and you have to remember, there's two types of grand juries, one is in investigating and the other is an indicting one. that's an important distinction because the point is in my view, this is an investigating one. they've subpoenaed certain documents and looking into, megyn, whether or not the senator took actions on behalf
.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. the investigation points the finger at the obama administration's state department. >> the man behind it, broadcaster charles herring, also runs wealth tv. bringing the panel back in. lauren ashburn, just because you cover media, i want to begin with you, reliable, credible, fact-based news with libertarian and conservative voices. how's that supposed to work? >> good luck with that. that's all i have to say. here's the problem, fox news has a motto that says it's fair and balanced, yet because of its primetime lineup of very conservative talk show hosts, it's almost impossible for the journalists to get their due. secondly, talk about carriage for a minute. current tv, left-leaning network, had tens of millions of subscribers. al gore couldn't make it work. had to sell it to al jazeera. al jazeera is putting together an english-language network. it is really hard to get traction in the tv marketplace, especially if you're going up against a behemoth like fox news, and you're coming out in a report like this? >> and if you read the article on "daily beast

the obama administration argued that we didn't need to take these steps that are being announced today. and there was pushback in congress, individuals saying, no, actually, we do need to do it and because they thought north korea would take the steps and be in the place where they are today. >> all right, jake tapper, thank you very much. exactly what jake will be covering on his new show and we'll remind everyone, jake has a new show on cnn, called "the lead" with jake tapper, debuts on monday the 18th, 4:00 p.m. eastern, here on cnn. >>> so we know north korea does have missiles. how many? and what kind? still unclear. we also know they're stepping up their nuclear capabilities, conducting testing in underground sites. chad myers is here now. talk us through the actual threat here, can they reach us? >> i think unclear is the best word you used. we think now that about 7,000 kilometers to 10,000 kilometers would be the longest icy they could launch. let's give you an idea of the rings. looks like an earthquake ring, but it is not. one more time, zoom back out, how far could this pos
